CAO Flathead

Description

A Real Blockhead…

‘Murica, son! Home of hot rods, pin-up chicks, and CAO’s greatest offering: CAO Flathead. Borrowing inspiration from American muscle cars, Flathead not only sports a highly-unique shape, but backs it up with a high-octane blend. Instead of the traditional round or torpedo shaped head, this sleek handmade is completely squared off. 

Heavy in the hand, CAO Flathead starts with a well-fermented Connecticut Broadleaf maduro wrapper. Thick and chewy, the leaf conceals a bevy of Nicaraguan and Dominican long-fillers embraced by a Connecticut Habano-seed binder. Then, each cigar is carefully box-pressed. We could tell you how good it is, or we could say this — CAO Flathead has over 2,000 customer reviews on CI, averaging 5 stars out of 5, and is the highest rated 60-ring cigar by Cigar Aficionado. Ever. 

Named the #3 Cigar of 2015, Flathead received an astounding 95-rating, noting: “From the first light, this seriously squared-off cigar takes off with notes of ripe fruit, leather, and molasses that only gain intensity.”

Cigars International lives up to my expectations once again. My favorite cigars arrived fresh and promptly. Never had a bad cigar from CI. I will definitely do my cigar shopping with them going forward.

Very heavy smoke. I don’t think it deserves a mid 90s rating. But I definitely would put it right around 90.

Not even close to the Flathead 660, but still enjoyed them. On a scale of 1-10 the V660 are an 8, but these V554 are only a 6. Bad durn with less flavor. I received a heavy discount, but will stick with the better quality smoke moving forward. I hope this helped

This is a smoker’s smoke. It has the three B’s. It’s big, bold and beautiful. This is my evening go-to smoke after a nice weekend meal. Do yourself a favor…don’t light it unless you have the time to enjoy it. It’s an amazing smoke.

I got 5 as part of a 35 cigar sampler. The other 30 were all well made and did not require much attention. But these five all wanted to tunnel or canoe. It took a lot of attention to keep them burning on track. Flavor was fine, but all five required selective wetting and selective relighting to get a consistent burn.

This cigar never disappoints. I initially smoked this cigar some time ago. I was immediately impressed. The construction of this stick is impeccable. Solid and firm, yet allowing for a full enjoyable draw. It is full bodied with great notes that do not diminish nor become overwhelming. This cigar is highly recommended. Enjoy!
